Comment:
Like most people here I was switched to Loryna by CVS. I was on Gianvi for 4 years and after only 1 month on this medication I can already see a change in my behavior. I have uncontrollable anxiety for no reason and cry at nothing. If you like the feeling of sanity I would highly recommend NOT tanking Loryna.

Comment:
I was on the birth control Yaz before I was unwillingly switched to Loryna by my CVS pharmacy. I hadn't heard great things about Loryna, but I decided to give it a shot. My moods changed instantly (for the worst), and I felt like a crazy woman 90% of the time and fell into depression. I was laughing on minute and crying the next over absolutely nothing. I hated this drug, and stopped using it. ... Show Full Comment

I have not had any bleeding or spotting, I have lost weight, my skin has cleared up, an ... Show Full Comment

I feel lucky that I lost my last pill pack. I called the doc and I am switching to a new pill. After reading these reviews, I realize that I have been experiencing many of the same things. The main issues are that my skin is breaking out and I am depressed. I'm not happy, my mood is low, and people tell me all the time to smile. I have no sex drive. What is the point of a birth control p ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have tried a very long list of various birth control methods including Nuvaring, Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, Yaz, among other pills. Loryna has been the absolute worst as far as breakthrough bleeding and irregular cycles. It didn't make my mood swings as terrible as the others, so I gave it an entire year for my body to adapt - it didn't. I'd have a dark, extremely uncomfortable period ofte ... Show Full Comment
